This might be the only place in Cabarrus County where you’ll be rewarded for putting the pedal to the metal. Started by NASCAR legend Richard Petty, the Richard Petty Driving Experience is a one-of-a-kind racing experience for NASCAR fans and speed demons.
The options to get in on the high-speed action range from riding shotgun in a NASCAR-style stock car while a professional instructor reaches speeds of up to 165 mph to getting behind the wheel for lessons and racing against fellow students for a true NASCAR experience.
The more intense programs include on-track and in-car instruction and up to 80 laps behind the wheel.
The bragging rights are even better than wearing the fitted racing suit.
